Current Status of SLA Class I And II Serology

Part of the Current Topics in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science book series (CTVM, volume 52)


Eighteen SLA class I specificities have been internationally defined. In addition 13 specificities have been defined nationally by highly correlated sera and in family studies. Based on known recombinants and accumulated data from typing of more than 700 informative families in several countries the presently defined SLA specificities were tentatively allotted to 3 class I allelic series; an internatinal nomenclature has been established, accordingly.
